This vintage photo shows corn shredding at the Henry Volz farm in 1916, Sebewaing, Mich. Henry is at the engine. Some of the readers may recognize the engine as a 15 HP IHC Famous portable. Henry and his son, the late Harlon Volz, insisted that International engines were the best. The corn shredder is also an IHC. Hope the readers enjoy it. Photo courtesy of Wesley Volz.
